It’s after church and everyone is talking and kids are running around with their freshly made crafts from Sunday school. The door is wide open letting in the milky warm day and a fresh pine scented breeze. Everything is just right- I’m laughing with my best friend and her fiancé when I see my own lovely boy from across the room. “I’ll be right back,” I said, excusing myself. I crossed the room and fell into his arms, so big and so strong. He picks me up and twirls me around and laughs, letting my dress flow with the movements.
When he puts me down he says, “You feel so much lighter today,” And he’s right, such a lovely day because the scale told me I was 135.0 lbs today. Life is good when I’m losing.
